The Roots of Greenscape

In 1975, joined by their desire to improve the Jacksonville landscape, 一小群市民成立了非营利组织“杰克逊维尔绿地”, Inc. The organization’s first project focused on the Downtown area. 通过杰克逊维尔市区发展局与杰克逊维尔市合作, Greenscape沿着市中心的人行道种植了250棵纪念树. The rest, as they say, is history!

绿化逐渐将焦点从城市中心向外转移, 与感兴趣的邻居和社区团体共同承担在杰克逊维尔地区植树的责任. 今天,该组织为我们当地的树冠增加了超过35万棵树. In addition to its own tree planting projects, Greenscape热情地拥抱它作为变革催化剂的角色. The organization regularly approaches neighborhoods, 机构和政府机构有令人兴奋和创新的项目.

Greenscape通过积极参与与树木有关的各个层面的问题,为杰克逊维尔设定了环境标准. 与杰克逊维尔市合作,以顾问的身份制定城市景观条例, serving on the Mayor’s Environmental Advisory Committee, JEA’s Tree Coalition, and the Keep Jacksonville Beautiful Commission, 绿色景观继续扩大我们的树冠对我们社区的健康和经济福祉的重要性的认识. 该组织在当地获得了许多奖项和认可, state and national levels.
